Hands-on time: 10 minutes // Time from start to finish: 15 minutes

Ingredient List: Ground Pork, Smoked Paprika, Sweet Paprika, Chili con Carne, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Salt

Dump the ground pork into a large bowl, add salt (and pepper, if you don’t have a sensitive palate like Charlie), and spices. Being as gentle with the meat as you can, mix together with your hands, and form into small meatballs—about the size of a spherical nickel. 

I air-fried these for about 8 minutes at 400F, but baking or pan searing would work, too. No added oil is necessary, the pork has it all!

Serve over a green salad, cauliflower rice, or roasted veggies.
